This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

COMC Purchase #3–Paul Konerko

I had some money burning a hole through my COMC account and decided to spend it. The negative – I forgot to leave $3 to to pay for the shipping, so I had to add another $10 so I could ship them. The positive – that gave me another $7 to spend. I basically went through each player collection and picked up some cheap cards that I didn’t have.  The following is previous entry’s on this purchase.

Dave Dravecky CollectionLuis Aparicio Collection – Paul Konerko Collection – Tom Seaver Collection – 1981 Topps – 1973 Topps – Michigan Collection

You can see above what is to come, if there is no link, it is to come soon.


  • 1999 Metal Universe Neophytes ($.43)
  • 1999 Topps New Breed ($.45)

A couple of Cincinnati Reds cards, I have very few in a Reds uniform.  These may even be my firsts but I’m not positive.


  • 1995 Upper Deck Minors ($.44)

And of course, a Los Angeles Dodger one.


  • 2009 Upper Deck First Edition ($.40)
  • 2009 Topps 206 ($.40)
  • 2010 Topps Finest ($.40)

I really like the Topps Finest.  Probably because of the shinyness of it.


  • 2012 Bowman Silver Ice ($1.90)
  • 2012 Topps Gold Sparkle ($.48)

You can see where I paid a bit more for the Silver Ice card.  That was after I had to add another $10 to pay for shipping so I just grabbed a few more high priced (for me) cards.  This was one of them.  I just love the looks of those cards.

I paid $3 to ship all 46 cards which comes out to just under $.07 a card.
